Specialists advised to stick to a simple formula. To heat the room an area of ​​10 square meters. m with a ceiling height of 2.5 m requires 1 kW of heat energy. But since losses are inevitable in heat transfer, it’s better purchase a boiler with a power reserve (15-20%).

Heat exchanger material. Most aggressive the heat exchanger is exposed to fire and water. Manufacturers use several materials to make this responsible the details.

  1. The cheapest boilers are equipped with a steel structure. Term their service is limited to several years due to rapid corrosion.
  2. Stainless steel heat exchangers are considered more tenacious. They are not afraid of corrosion, but are expensive.

  4. Cast iron compares favorably with other materials corrosion, reliability and durability. Only if uneven heat exchanger may crack.
